Notes and Editorial Reviews

"Using period instruments and a small chamber orchestra similar to Haydn’s at Eszterháza, Solomons produced what are still, for me, the most thrilling performances of this repertoire on disc. This is Haydn pushing to extend the emotional capabilities of symphonic form...Solomons brings the Sturm und Drang of Haydn’s inner dramas vividly, starkly, to life. Enthralling music, brilliantly played. More, please, Sony!"
